The Fortunes of Pioneers

Small plots
and the roots of irrigation
rivers tapped
for the sustenance of Man
on tiny tracts of land
cut out – Manifestations
of the developments
of our ancestors.

One man’s land
shrouded in mists
is another man’s

Building mysteries
Like ants build colonies
Carving empires into sand
As we hover above
to behold the beauty
Of vast tracks of land
Leagues above the fray.
